Singing Ice – Doug Quin and the Sounds of Antarctica

I first met Douglas Quin back in 1993 at the First Tuning of the World Conference in Banff Canada. Sound recordists, musicians, academics and acoustic ecologists came to celebrate the soundscape. Doug Quin embodies all those disciplines. He has recorded in the Antarctic, Africa, the Amazon and worked in many different contexts, including doing sound design for museum installations and feature films, such Jurassic Park III and Werner Herzog’s documentary “Encounters at the End of the World.” Doug is a kindred spirit and one of the best sound documentarians I know. Here’s the first part of an extended conversation with Doug about exploring the world of sound, which features a number of his remarkable recordings.
